Rachel took her time with me and my issues on how my body worked. What I appreciate most is that she understood ME and everything with how I move -- this makes me respect the process a lot more! Energy Within is legit, not a health club with a newbie.

I just read the listed review and I remember the conversation. I believe that you misunderstood. I suggested that you come in for a private before you go into a class so I could become familiar with your body. I have had many people in the past that said they had done pilates before. When they came into class without taking the private first, it was clear that they truly did not understand the work. I have learned form my mistakes.
When a person comes in for the first time, I require three privates before they go into a class. The reason this is done is so the individual does not feel lost and understands what is being asked of them. In a perfect world I would be able to put beginner people in a beginner class, but that is not how it works. If someone does 3 privates (there have been times that I have told someone after one private that I believe they would be fine in a class and they do not have to do any more and there are other times that I suggest the individual take more than three) it does not disrupt the class as the individual is beginning to understand what to do. I am sorry you feel the way you do.

I'm sure Pilates The Energy Within is a great studio - several of my friends swear by them - but they, like so many others insist that new students pay $80 for several sessions with the instructors before allowing them to take classes. Come on! If I were a beginner - which I'm not - I completely understand it. I'm an off again, on again practioner who likes to drop in here and there around my crazy schedule. I explained this to Rachel but she insisted I go through the new student 3 private session route. I declined. It's too bad because my friends all think it's a great studio. I'll never know.
